Deck painting

Now the weather is brightening up, Iím planning to repaint my deck. Itís already a textured surface so I was planning on just painting over it with some fresh orange toplac after keying up the surface. My issue is that the current deck is black and I want it orange, itís going to take many coats to cover the black, am I best off using a primer first? If so what one?

Best option is sand back with a 60 or 80g fibre disk or flap wheel on a grinder & coat with antislip flowcoat, the best & most hardwearing cost effective solution imho

What he said. Toplac isn't great on decks, its not particularly hard wearing over time and its quite slippery when wet.

The "proper" way to do this is with gel/flowcoat. With an appropriate roller you don't even need to use an additive to get a non siip finish. And it'll last and look good for many years.
